Classified Advertising in
a Classic Camera Magazine

All classified ads are only 20 cents per word for subscribers. No minimum, no maximum number of words. Do not abbreviate. Make your message clear. CameraShopper does not charge for the numerical condition rating (example: C6, C7+, C8-) to describe quality.

CameraShopper Pledge

Since the question of conflict of interest is an understandable concern, we pledge that neither we nor anyone associated with the production of CameraShopper will contact advertisers for a period of one week following the mailing of CameraShopper. We considered a total prohibition but concluded that if we were the only potential buyer for an item, such a restriction would penalize the advertiser.

There will be absolutely no skimming.

  1. Payment in full by check drawn on a U.S. bank or postal money order in U.S. funds, must accompany all advertising orders. You may also pay with money order, PayPal Western Union or bank draft on US bank. No Eurocheques please. To keep cost of advertising in CameraShopper as low as possible, billing is not available, unless arranged in advance with the publisher.

Standards for Advertisers
  • It is to your advantage to describe items conservatively and accurately. CameraShopper strongly suggests that advertisers give a return privilege on all items. Buyer should immediately contact seller if an item is to be returned.
  • Sellers are required to accept the first offer for any item at the price stated in the ad. If you accept an offer, you may not accept higher offers received subsequently. Cameras, images or other items advertised may not be sold for more than the advertised price.
  • All cameras, images, or items advertised must be ready for immediate shipment. Ads must state clearly who pays for shipping and handling charges. Items shipped must be properly packaged and shipped by a responsible carrier. It is also suggested you insure the item(s).
  • Prices must be listed in all ad. Items without prices or requesting "best offer", "make an offer", "bids welcomed" or any variation will be deleted.
  • All advertisers using post office boxes for reply must have their home or business address and telephone number on file with CameraShopper unless stated in the ad.
